“We are very excited for Mike to be joining our team. The hiring committee had an impressive lineup of people to choose from, but in the end, we knew that Mike was the perfect fit. We are not only excited to see a bright and talented Rushville native return but overjoyed at his willingness to serve our community through this capacity,” said Mayor Mike Pavey.

Mike was also involved in Slabtown workshops as a participant and counselor.
“I am so excited to return to Rushville and to give back to a community that blessed me with a wonderful childhood. I am overjoyed to join a team that has done tremendous work in transforming Rushville into a vibrant community. The parks play a large role in that, and I look forward to the challenge of keeping our parks beautiful and growing programing to reach even more people,” said new Parks Director Mike Shaw.
Mike was a 1983 graduate of RCHS, a 1987 graduate of Wabash College, and a 2002 graduate of Life Chiropractic College West. He is the son of Edna Moster who taught at RCHS for several years.
